Liberty and Security in Modern Times
Civil Liberties and McCarthyism
In this lesson, students will use primary source documents to examine and analyze the anti-communist behaviors that characterized American public life following World War II.
Inalienable / Natural Rights
Freedoms which belong to us by nature and can only be justly taken away through due process.
Except where authorized by citizens through the Constitution, the government does not have the authority to limit freedom.
Citizens are best able to pursue happiness when government is confined to those powers which protect their life, liberty, and property.
